DAYS Casting Exclusive!
By SOD • Posted: Jun 2, 2011

Be sure to pick up your next issue of Digest for an exclusive interview with DAYS OF OUR LIVES's Executive Producer Ken Corday about the recent head writer switch and plans for the future. "You will see, in the course of a month, in the neighborhood of six characters leave Salem and five or six characters return or come to Salem, leading up to a huge September," he reveals. "This is not a time where I'm going to be penny-wise and pound-foolish. I'm going to throw everything but the kitchen sink on-screen, but it's not going to be spread among 30 cast members. It's going to be centered on 15, and 15 who are loved and are dear to the audience." For more, be sure to head to the newsstand tomorrow.

I just hope Corday knows what he's talking about when he says 15 characters who are loved and dear to the audience!

A-Crane,

You might get your Marlena and John back after all.......... Wink Wink

It was rumored that Deidre Hall and Crystal Chappell never got along, so do you think that they got rid of Crystal to accommodate Deidre's return??

I don't know... Both

I don't know... Both actresses gave interviews with Nelson Branco last year where they refuted the feud and said they had mutual respect for each other.

The fact is, Crystal's contract was up and Carly's return was obviously not working so they decided to cut their losses. I feel bad for Crystal fans (hey, Carly was my favourite---more so than Marlena actually!!--during her original stint), but she'll land on her feet.

Aren't they bringing back

Aren't they bringing back Austin and Carrie permanently? I thought Patrick Muldoon and Christie Clark were slated for a return?

I have no idea what is going

I have no idea what is going on there. Christie returned for that one episode, and the pic we saw of her, Alison and Patrick on the Days set was because Patrick met her there for lunch. She later blogged that he said he'd be interested in coming back to Days. She hasn't blogged in a while but I hope she returns! With OLTL axed, even Austin Peck is available, but I'd love the original and best Austin to return.

I wouldn't be surprised if Bill and Laura return as well, if these new writers want to focus on Jennifer, Jack and the Hortons (I want a Kate/Bill/Laura triangle with Vivian rooting on Laura and manipulating the situation!).

Well, if Carrie and Austin do

Well, if Carrie and Austin do return, I wonder if the writers will do another triangle and throw EJ or Rafe into the mix? Last time Carrie returned, Sami and Carrie were a little bit too chummy for my taste. I miss the days when they were at each other's throats. And we all know that Sami is not this boring Stepford wife that she's become now. She's one step away from baking cookies and giving counseling sessions at the local YMCA. Gimme a break.

Some people might enjoy the more "evolved" Sami, but I find it slightly boring. If Carrie returns, they HAVE to find a way to reignite their old rivalry.

They need to do something

They need to do something wild and out there, like have Carrie get pregnant but then Sami drugs her and has the embryo implanted in her body. It's a classic Days story, the kind of wild, out-there thing I wanna see from the disciples of James E. Reilly!

I don't want Carrie and Austin in a love triangle, though. They are a supercouple--they are beyond that. There is plenty of story to tell with these two without a third party coming between them. Career conflicts, their infertility issues, Kate's pushiness, etc...

I wonder who all is leaving.

I wonder who all is leaving. I think it will be (and hope) or already is:
1)Carly
2)Vivian
3)Gabi
4)Quinn
5)Chloe
6)Dario
I don't see Daniel leaving with the triangle between him, Jack, and Jennifer going on, probably into the end of the year and further. I wish Melanie would leave, but I don't see that happening. Hopefully Dario will leave and Nicole and Melanie can fight over Brady or something.
As for people coming back we already have or will have (I believe):
1)Marlena
2)John
3)Jack
4)Carrie or Belle
5)Austin or Shawn
and the possible 6)Lucas maybe? or Eric? I like the idea of Forbes March as Eric. He has the full lips and blondish hair like Jensen Ackles.
I don't see Kayla and Patch coming back since Stephen Nichols is still playing Tucker on Y&R and probably will be for the forseeable future. I kind of wonder if Celeste might come back. I could see her in a recurring role though. It works well for John Aniston anyway. I'm not really hoping for Belle and Shawn. I'd rather Carrie and Austin come back. Belle and Shawn annoyed me for some reason.
I'm excited that Ken Corday and Gary Tomlin finally woke up and smelled the roses. I hope it goes well.

Alston,

I hate to burst your bubble, but there are very strong indications that James Scott (EJ) will exit Salem with Taylor (Tamara Braun). That's what I've been hearing. James Scott has been wanting out of DOOL for some time now and this might be one of those exits we'll see.

I'm hoping you're right. I've grown tired of EJ and Taylor has just made him more grating. I hope they do leave.

Matealestimo-- Really?? James

Matealestimo--

Really?? James Scott wants out of DAYS? I have never understood why soaps insist on keeping around ungrateful actors who really don't want to be there. EJ could EASILY be recast with any of at least a HUNDRED equally as hot out-of-work actors, all of whom would probably be just as talented and qualified. James Scott is not iconic enough to the point that he can't be replaced.

I like the guy and his body/face/accent makes me wanna MELT, but if he wants to be freed, I think they should free him. I have heard him say that he wants to leave the business and relocate to another country. Well, I think he should do just that. And don't let the doorknob hit you in the junk on the way out!!!

Dueces!!

Alston,

Remind me to never get on your bad side. It's bad enough that I CANNOT stand Alistair's arrogance as it is! LOL

Since Jack, John and Marlena

Since Jack, John and Marlena have already been revealed to be coming back i'm hoping the last three that are coming back are Lucas, Eric and Sarah.

I am definitely up for Lucas

I am definitely up for Lucas coming back full time. He has 3 exes on the show that he could be involved with as well as a son who is potentially going to be gay.

Lucas and Sami are the perfect couple. I never understood why they ditched him for Rafe.
